Erasers

It seems everywhere I look, mainstream, LGBT and conservative Christian journalists are reporting about, and opining on the Orlando mass murder at Pulse, as well as lawmakers saying things and taking votes. If we’re going to talk in terms of groups of people, instead of us as individuals, for a moment, we all see random, […]

Love ultimately wins

As a progressive Christian, I believe there are many names for God and many ways to a loving God; this article reflects one of those ways. Take from here what works for you. Celebrate life with joy and peace! I don’t know about you, but as I’m writing this, I am still reeling over the […]

California: The ‘island’ of dreams

202_5637_8521.jpg

California is a big place and it comes in first in all kinds of ways. It’s the most populous state in the U.S. with over 38 million residents. It isn’t the largest, coming in third in land area after Alaska and Texas. It does, however, boast the highest point in the continental U.S., (Mt. Whitney […]

The race we all missed

202_5626_8499.jpg

The June 7 ballots are almost all counted, and the results largely as expected. Mayor Faulconer won an outright majority, avoiding a November run-off, as did Councilmembers Mark Kersey and Scott Sherman and Councilmember-elect Chris Ward. Barbara Bry did slightly better than expected but will have to take on Ray Ellis in the general, where […]

‘Tickled’ is no laughing matter

202_5630_8512.jpg

Whether you admit it or not, whether you did it deliberately, you’ve watched some odd sexual stuff on the Internet. Because as the song goes, “The Internet is for porn.” Some fetish videos aren’t surprising, whether it’s feet or leather or women’s panties. But some are, or at least they’re surprising to most people. When […]

A ‘Perfect’ way to celebrate Marriage Equality Day

202_5633_8515.jpg

It’s been a year since marriage equality became the law of the land as the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the last of the anti-same-sex marriage laws. I watched all of this up close, chronicling the fight for eight and a half years as the author of the Marriage Equality Watch blog. I started in […]

Meet Jeffrey Marsh

Meet the Vine star, author and youth advocate who has lit up social media with more than a quarter billion views In an age of often vapid social media, where our likes, dislikes, beliefs and values are funneled through an echo chamber of our own choosing, it is no surprise that both the metrics and […]

Orlando: 48 hours in San Diego

202_5627_8500.jpg

Around one in the morning Sunday, June 12, my phone started ringing off the hook. Soon I was in a conversation with Stuart Milk, (founder of the Harvey Milk Foundation), who lives in Florida, and Russell Roybal (Acting national director of the National LGBTQ Task Force in Washington, D.C.) and other national and Florida LGBT […]

#Homomisia

Rainbow flag

The horror of the Orlando killings is being attributed by most to homophobia, “fear of homosexuality.” The word is not correct as we are clearly not dealing with fear here, but with hate. Using “miso” the more appropriate Greek root, makes the correct formation of the word “homosexualmisia” or more simply “homomisia.” But I guess […]
